Grey Power has allocated a committee member to monitor the performance of the NPDC, attend Council meetings, review NPDC documents (such as the Long Term Community Plan and the annual budget) and make recommendations to the Grey Power committee for submissions to Council on a wide variety of matters affecting Grey Power members. Your current representative is Keith Allum who can be contacted via the details on this site's Contact page.
